Missouri Helmet Update.
May 8, 2012
ABATE for Missouri has the Helmet bill wording in a Conference
Committee. It's on SB719. We need to make some phone calls and have the
Helmet Amendment stay on this bill!!
Riders 21 and up will be able to have the choice of a helmet or no
helmet. It does carry additional medical coverage and is very similar in
how the last 7 states have passed bills.
And for everyone out of state – please call also and remind them that
you are avoiding riding through the state of Missouri due to the current
helmet law and are not spending your tourist dollars in Missouri.
Yes We Want This!!!
Let's work to keep the language intact!!!
Let's all get this to the Governor’s desk.
